I began with around the house of family and friends then the handyman services expanded by word of mouth and then advertising and here I am.
My customers vary because not only do I offer my services to the general public also through sources on social media, in addition to my professional services are contracted with retailers and other service providers which is why I know my fees are fair and competitive and I know what I'm doing.
Hire a pro you feel comfortable with check their work and referrances.
Don't be fooled or swayed by those that claim to be handyman but instead are licensed remodeling contractors that are trying to corner all aspects of the market and eliminate small business companies then jack up the rates.
Licensed and insured and bonded are great pluses, but those add up in your fees as overhead and not always needed for certain projects, so pick the skill you need and spend wisely.
(EX: Drywall repair- If you have a hole in the wall like a door knob hole and you are being pressed for a licensed/bonded/insured contractor that can cost you anywhere from $200+ or for the same repair a handyman whether or not a weekender or professional can charge you $75 - $180)
Be selective and careful because the savings sometimes is not worth it if you're picking up a contractor that seems to be on beer / booze fest from the night after and you don't want to be fooled by the sharp dressed man that can scam you, but looks professional...I'm sure you've seen those types.
* Seek estimates at least two or more.
* Get all the information possible that will affect your budget.
* Set two budgets, Low & Highest, determine the pros & cons or what do you get for each vs what you really do & don't need.
* Is your project a permit type or that requires strict building code knowledge or you have very expensive items and home? You may want to go with that licensed/bonded/insured contractor.
